Notes

Softbank: Morifuku is 5-0 in 21 games since his last loss on 9/2/1010 (vs Nippon Ham).

Nippon Ham: The Fighters lost their first since since dropping the very first series of the season (as in, this is just the second series the Fighters have lost so far this year). ... Saito left the game after only one inning because of discomfort in his left flank.
